In their first meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday after his re-election, Secretaries to the Government of India have been tasked with creating a five-year road map for each Ministry with well-defined targets.

The meeting, which took place at the Prime Minister’s residence, was also attended by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Home Minister Amit Shah, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Dr. Jitendra Singh.

During the meeting, Cabinet Secretary P.K. Sinha tasked the sectoral groups of secretaries with preparing a five-year plan document for each Ministry, with well-defined targets and milestones. In addition, there is also a need to propose “a significant impactful decision” in each Ministry, for which approvals will be taken within 100 days, an official release said.

Mr. Modi pointed out that each department had a role to play in making India a five-trillion dollar economy. While asking each Ministry to focus on ‘ease of living’, the Prime Minister added that India’s progress in ‘Ease of Doing Business’ should reflect in greater facilitation for small businesses and entrepreneurs, an official release said.
